Justin Raimondo has an excellent column today that pretty much sums up how the war in Iraq is going so far. Apparently it’s not going to be the cakewalk that was promised at the beginning, but of course it’s the American soldiers and the Iraqis who get to pay the price for this, not the […]

Right now there’s really too much going on, and too much being said, for me to be able to keep up with posting about any decent percentage of it. To make matters even worse, I’ll be heading off on a trip in the middle of next week, so I’ll fall even farther behind! If you’re […]

“Dear Governor Bush: So today is what you call ‘the moment of truth,’ the day that ‘France and the rest of world have to show their cards on the table.’ I’m glad to hear that this day has finally arrived. Because, I gotta tell ya, having survived 440 days of your lying and conniving, I […]

“At the moment, really, the most rational possible reaction to the Bush administration’s national-security policy is to light one’s hair on fire and run down the street screaming about Jesus.

Before reading through all of the other reaction to President Bush’s Monday evening speech, I thought I’d offer my own commentary on what he had to say last night. I’m only quoting the highlights, but the full text of his remarks can be found here. Fair warning, this is rather long. For more than a […]

There is more than one person out there who thinks that the war on Iraq will start [by which I mean swing into high gear] either Monday or Tuesday. Guess we’ll see if they’re right, but at this point it’s only a matter of when, not if.

“An airline passenger has complained to U.S. authorities that a government baggage screener left a note in his suitcase criticizing his lack of patriotism after finding a ‘No Iraq War’ sign inside his bag.” … “With some 15,000 to 20,000 folks at the rodeo drinking beer and having fun, things can get a little out […]

Yes, it’s another excellent This Modern World comic. Go read it! Oh, and this link doesn’t involve dealing with the day pass, since it’s on a different site.

Learning about Israel

“Let’s begin by laying out where I’m coming from on the issue of Israel. I find anti-Semitism to be a loathsome ideology. My Jewish grandfather came to this country in 1938, escaping from Nazi Germany. My half-Jewish father and uncle were still in Germany during the Kristallnacht, only escaping with my grandmother later that same […]
